CBS has started to put together a pretty compelling summer lineup. Today, the network announced that three of its original programs will be returning this summer, along with a brand new TV series based on a bestseller by James Patterson.
The Graveyard of Cancelled TV Series waits for no one, and there are quite a few shows out there with buzzards circling overhead, just waiting for that one memo so they can strike. (Incidentally, no new shows about buzzards this year, yet again.)
Halle Berry’s TV series Extant is about to get a huge revamp ahead of its second season. News broke this week that the show is dumping a chunk of the cast that appeared in the first season and will be signing on a new crew during Season 2. The why and how of the transition gets a little stickier.
It seems way too early to start thinking about the Big Brother Season 16 finale yet. But CBS has set the date for the 90-minute season finale, which will crown one houseguest the winner. The finale of Big Brother and the premiere of Survivor will occupy a three hour block together on Wednesday, September 24, which just so happens to be the big premiere week for broadcast television.
Arriving on Wednesday night is CBS's new 13-episode serialized drama Extant. Combining mystery, thrills and a futuristic backdrop, Extant gets off to an intriguing start, with a premiere episode that sets the stage for what may prove to be a truly gripping summer mystery, wrapped in a sci-fi story involving family, artificial intelligence and outer space.
CBS has announced their Fall TV premiere schedule, calling it a "multi-phase rollout." The schedule begins with NFL Thursday Night Football on September 11, while the scripted series don't start rolling out until the week of Sunday, September 21. Among the returning shows lined up for premiere week are The Good Wife, Person of Interest and Hawaii Five-0...
The Summer TV season is upon us. With new shows like Extant, Rush and Tyrant -- among others -- joining the lineup, and returning series like True Blood, Doctor Who, Under the Dome, Defiance and Graceland lined up, TV has plenty to offer us this summer.
I’m wholeheartedly hoping against hope that this futuristic drama will be the cerebral science fiction that networks so rarely aim for, and this android-and-alien/ghost/thing-filled trailer seen above emboldens my expectations. Which means they have that much farther to fall.
With their upcoming sci-fi drama Extant, CBS has been holding plot details pretty close to the vest. But we now have our first trailer for the summer series. The thirty second spot is more of a teaser than it is a full trailer, but it does offer us some footage from the drama, including a few glimpses of Halle Berry in space.
CBS has updated their Summer schedule and includes the premiere date of Season 16 of Big Brother. The reality competition series will kick off nearly a year to the date from last season's premiere, which got off to an earlier start than usual. Also on the schedule is CBS's new drama Reckless, and a slightly updated start date for the sci-fi series Extant.
CBS's upcoming sci-fi drama Extant is proving to be quite the mystery, in that the same vague description continues to circulate, which tells us that the story involves Halle Berry's astronaut character and some potentially world-changing events that could play out while she attempts to reconnect with her family after an extended trip in outer space
Following up on word that CBS's sci-fi drama Extant will premiere on July 2, the Eye has given us a brief teaser, which offers no glimpse of star Halle Berry, but does emphasize the title's meaning, with its focus on life and existence — and the opposite of extinction— and also throws in a tagline that seems intent on referencing the Spielberg connection here.
Are you ready to return to the Dome? Well, we still have a while to wait for Under the Dome to return to CBS for its second season, but the network did announce the official premiere date for the series, along with the debut date for their new drama Extant, starry Halle Berry. Also announced today were the return dates for The Amazing Race: All Stars and Survivor.
Remember last summer when Amazon Prime made each new episode of CBS’ hit summer drama Under the Dome available just days after it aired? Awareness of this may be contingent on whether or not you were a Prime subscriber at the time or had any interest in Under the Dome. Regardless, it was a new approach for CBS and Amazon Prime in quickly distributing the series on the streaming video service one episode at a time...
Though its numbers have declined a bit since its premiere, Under the Dome continues to be a ratings success for CBS. This Monday night's episode, for example, was the highest rated in adults 25-54 and Monday's most-watched program. So it's understandable that CBS would be confident enough in their partnership with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television to want to push forward with another series set for next summer.
